Exhibit Dates

Friday, June 10 through Wednesday, June 23, 2016

Exhibit Hours

Monday - Friday, 8am to 8pm
Saturday 9am to Noon

The exhibit includes artwork submitted by Ocean County senior artists in a wide variety of media. As in previous years, we believe this exhibit will be your opportunity to surround yourself with the beauty and emotion that art is meant to illicit.

All entries awarded first place in this exhibit are eligible to enter the New Jersey State Senior Citizens Annual Juried Art Contest and Exhibition. Several Ocean County artists have gone on to achieve recognition at the state show.

Whether you entered your work or are just visiting the Gallery, remember the words of Pablo Picasso, “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
